The 4th of April saw the opening of the yearly Norwegian Poker Championship. Running all the way to the 13th of April the event had Dublin colored red, white and blue by Norwegian poker players.
The main event had 1,264 players competing for the highest title which was eventually won by Vegard Nygaard (from PokerStars) a close second was the Betsson poker player Afshin Alikhani, who challenged Vegard closely in the final head to head.
NordicBet got the Norwegian Championship title in Fixed Limit (Tor-Arne Fenes) while Betsson won Heads Up through Yngve Steen.
It was a great week for a lot of our players, NordicBet was the biggest brand in the main event with 238 players close to Betsson’s 235 players. Betsafe had over 100 on its team during the week including some truly fantastic ambassadors such as Triana Iglesias who got to day 2 in the main event and Joakim Sommer (Wingsuit flyer)who ended has number 32 after some fantastic play in the main event.
All in all a great week for Betsson group in Dublin with lots of fun and with a peppering of nice online PR, print promotions and TV coverage.
